In .
meet with Syracuse, which the
State frosh 'won 19-36, it's not rea
sonable to assume that they have
run iSarallel careers in other ways.
And, oddly enough, that's just
what we found out when" we start
ed to inquire about the two ISTit
tany frosh who ran the three-mile
course in 15:46, only 13 seconds
slower than the freshman record.
On one hand we have Candy,
weighing in at 138, 5' 11 - tall, who
never ran cross-country before he
came to Penn State from Tyrone
this fall. His running mate, -- Hobbs,
125 pounds, 5' 6 1 / 2 itall, ran second
in the Public High School Cross-
Country Championships in Phila
delphia last year after three years
. of competition, for Northeast High.
Candy's experience in high
school was limited to mile races.
Last year he took third in the state
championships with a 4:29 mile.
He's got a good-looking sister
who's a red-headed nurse in the
College Infirmary, by the way.
Hobbs, besides , his cross-country
experience, ran' the mile in high
school and was a half-hearted pole
The parallel shows again in the
friendly manner of both boys. Both
are dark-headed stylists of Gene
Yenske's type.

Injuries cripple Lions
Ili FOI Smnd Win
A badly crippled Lion freshman
grid outfit will play its last home
game of the season against a pow
erfuLbunch of Cornell yearlings on
the football practice • field at 12:30
p.m. today.
' The whole frosh team, according
to Coach Marty McAndrews, is
"pretty well bunged up." This is
in addition to injuries which have
forced regulars Bob Wallace and
John Jaffurs to the sidelines and
which have made necessary •the
transfer of Andy Yurick, guard;
to quarterback to fill in for Harry
Snyder, second-string signal
caller. •
Both teams will be seeking their
second victory of the season: 'ln
two contests the Ithaca youngsters
have walked over Kiski, 34-0, and
been edged 7-6 by the same Col
gate tedin 'which fought to a 7-7
tie with State.
In two other contests the Lion
ye.arlings outscored Bucknell„ 13-0,
and took a licking from Syracuse,
The probable starting lineup for
State - : Jack Potsklan, left end; Dan
Halpin, left tackle; Paul Schlegel,
left guard; Joe Kraynack, center;
Jim Bonham, right guard; Bernie
Brosky, right tackle; Bucky Wal
iers, right end; Aldo Cenci, quar
terback; Chappy Peters, left half
back; Dan Dimidio, right half
back; and Jack Banbury, fullback.
